MEDICAL ADVICE - PLEASE ACKNOWLEDGE YOU HAVE READ THIS (Repost)

Just a note to remind everyone that no one, including the Admin Team, on this community should be assumed to have medical training of any sort.

Everyone is only speaking from their own experience, that of friends/family or other people they may have spoken to.

People MAY be able to evidence some of their information by linking to research or reliable websites, or quoting from well researched books and if at all possible this should be done when making 'definite' statements.

Just because something worked for you, this categorically does not mean that it will work for everyone, or indeed anyone, else! Please can everyone remember that in everything that they post.

Everyone is entitled to have their opinions listened to and respected, this does not mean that everyone has to agree with them, but please keep arguing to a minimum and personal snipes and attacks should be avoided at all costs.

We have Posting Guidelines which are there to aid with the smooth running of the site and the comfort and safety of everyone.

Please can everyone take a moment to read (or re-read) the Guidelines.

  • Read (and re-read) and duly noted. Very useful reminder, especially as we appear to be Thyroid International rather than Thyroid UK now! There must be many new members who have never read the guidelines and might even wonder why they are needed, especially with regard to medicines.

  • This may be true that no one has medical training on this site but shared experience and knowledge is what has got me back to feeling good. Three NHS guidelines are so restrictive that the only way I got any help was to appear to know what I was talking about. Then I found the clinicians much more helpful. I am convinced that their hands are tied - as they must be in possession of all the info and evidence that we are. I am so grateful to the contributors of Thyroid uk- without whom I would still be in that black tunnel.
